Chelsea House Orchestra

Started in 1996 by director Jed Fritzemeier, CHO consists of 25 accomplished musicians from the Chelsea High School music program who perform on violin, viola, cello, bass guitar, woodwinds and percussion. Their “Celtic with a Kick!” music combines Scottish and Irish traditions and Celtic renditions of American folk songs, with a little rock and roll thrown in for fun. CHO’s high energy shows are immensely popular throughout the U.S. at large Celtic festivals, on formal stages, and events both large and small.
